WOW I missed that cointest?? It was funny and congratulations to snowball!!!!

thse tricky questions reminded me some others I know!

1) how many years the 100 year war lasted?

2) from which country is Panama hat?

3) In what months Russians used to celebrate the October revolution??

4) From which animal did the Canary islands took their name?

Nope, IT IS NOT A COINTEST, but just something for fun!

These answers are easy!!! I can post the answers if you like!

I am planing to make a cointest too, but it is going to have other questions! some easy, some difficult and probably one... let's see if the lucky 13 will be the final number of the questions I will post, or if I will have to post a smaller number! We will see....

You will have to have at least one question about Greek food! looking forward to your cointest GATOULIS

1) how many years the 100 year war lasted? 116

2) from which country is Panama hat? Ecuador

3) In what months Russians used to celebrate the October revolution?? November 1917 Gregorian calendar).[

4) From which animal did the Canary islands took their name? Dogs

Just couldn't resist!!! Can't wait for the real thing!!!!!

Oh boy!!! I haven't thought of that!!! I have to add one question about greek food too!

So, instead of posting less than 13 questions, I will go to 14!

1) how many years the 100 year war lasted? 116

2) from which country is Panama hat? Ecuador

3) In what months Russians used to celebrate the October revolution?? November 1917 Gregorian calendar).[

4) From which animal did the Canary islands took their name? Dogs

Just couldn't resist!!! Can't wait for the real thing!!!!!

Correct!!!! Bravo!!!!!

I am thinking where to post the cointest.... (maybe here?) and what rules to make!

what I am thinking is.... I will post the Lucky 13, questions, probably with the same rules with Robert, and the winners of the 13 questions will try to find my last one, probably the most difficult one, but do not be scared! It will need some search, but I believe it is ok! The first who will post the correct answer wich will have many small questions inside... will get the coin!

The coin is a normal coin and I do not know if I am asking a lot about it!

I am also trying to think what to do so many will participate.... shall I have a rule that the person who will find one question can not answer any other? but what about if at the time I will not be in the net, someone will find 2 or 3 correct answers??

On the other hand, I can post all 14 ones, without any stop from finding more than 1 correct answer, and I will pick the winner with a drawing (papers with the names in a bowl...or something)!

Oh boy... seting a cointest is difficult or I am just making it difficult??

GETTING CLOSE TO LHD III STORY TIME ISN'T IT?

next RED WINGS intermission!!

You're on the spot now, since I know the game is OVER...You already came back and picked up your Kayaks!! I'm going to take my nap now!!

Wings won 5-2....I went back to the park to chat with Robert, but here's the log I'm posting for the LHD:

Lazy Hayes Days was a HUGE success as usual, the work the crew put in for this paid off in spades, we all had a GREAT time!! That said, let me tell you the tale:

Friday, I woke up bright and early so I could drop KAboom and David off at Hayes before heading to work. The boys had nearly everything packed, so camp could be set up, the caches could be completed and any other prep work needed done could be! Camp was quickly set up and the boys seemed eager to hit the lakes since the waters were mirror-like, I fed them quickly and we were off doing our own things. I expected to get out around 5pm due to work problems, but was able to finish by around 3pm or so, load up all the food, head over to Dan's for the farm fresh brown eggs and get on over to Hayes Park, the weekend had begun!!!

Hit Hayes' campgrounds and am happy to spot Robert's truck sitting in the #2 campsite...I am relieved since I had expected him Thursday, WHEW! I pull in to find that Nurse Nanna and LadyBee4T were already seting up as were several others, it was great to finally meet Robert after chatting so much here and via email! The crisis created with my forgetting to print out cache info and coords for the new caches was averted by the Geopigs who spent a few hours both at home and at work (him and her team at that), to print up info for our visitors...but no one could stop mother nature frommaking her loud appearance!

With a drizzly rain coming down, we were NOT deterred, we set up canopies and built the fire, dogs were ready to be roasted! Nurse Nanna also made some great banana/marshmallow/chocolate chip thing which went over the fire until the marhmallows were melted, YUM! Unfortunately, the drizzle turned to a downpour complete with a light show...we were not in for a nice night! It rained and rained and then rained a bit more, but the lightning was my real concern, we were under trees nd in a tent! Too tired to care long, I soon zonked out, but got little sleep due to the coldness! Woke up in the morning to hear noises from the boys' tents, we made it through the night!

We moved the party over to the beach pavillion and was met with a new adversary, the wind! It surely made for some interesting times, and some tricky cooking...but I burned the hotdogs while Write Shop Robert cooked up the brats. The dutch oven cookoff contestants cooked up a feast and a half, all were delicious, my hat goes off to them! We had corn chowder, bean soup and roast beef with sweet tators and all the fixings...and an apple cobbler later on back at the camp!

One group went after the night cache, but it was now very chilly and promising to drop even lower in the temps...this and the fact I had to get up at 4:30am made the choice of driving home instead of sleeping in the tents a second night an easy one! And I tell you, it was darned cold this morning while mowing the greens before the sun popped up (and even after the sun popped up...wow). I got back to camp with the boys (who slept in the Jeep while I mowed the greens lol) in time tostart cooking up the french toast, YUMMY! The breakfast crew did an AWESOME job, THANK-YOU ALL!! We sat around and picked on a frozen Nurse Nanna, who was wrapped up in a nice ducky robe and chatted with everyone for a few hours before heading home to watch the first game of the conference finals (Red Wings WIN), Write Shop Robert headed out to find the kayak cache and the grls packed up and headed on home.

We returned to find Robert crashed out in his truck, I guess the hills and the water took it's toll on him?? We chatted a while before saying our good-byes, Robert went back to bed...I told you there were hills, Robert!

Helmets save lives

Glad to hear you had a good time except for the weather

Stanley Cup Finals - Penguins and Red Wings again?

Always wear the right safty equipment.

GETTING CLOSE TO LHD III STORY TIME ISN'T IT?

Ok now that I have slept for the last four hours I will tell you the REAL story of the event that he didn't put in the log (well maybe not All of it! LOL!)

I had just about finished setting up camp when a big truck descended on us and who should that be but WSR! That meant hugs all around and the start of the stories!

But before I left I thought I asked you guys to talk with the weather gods and spare us that 4 letter word that starts with a R! There must have been a mix up in communication though and along with the rain came a quick drop in temperatures. It poured hard for awhile and then let up a bit. A few went out on the kayaks and I was absolutely postive that I was glad I didn't go. As it got closer to bedtime the rain continued and thank god the hardest rain started after we got in the tent. I hate crawling in bed wet and cold. I put on several layers and tried to sleep with the light storm that at one point I actually thought was a fire in Rod's camp site. I found out the next morning that a cop had been checking the campground and put a spotlight on my picnic table under the screen room. It seems a very big raccoon had taken up residence on the table! LOL I knew not to leave food out but I think that raccoon still hoped that he could find something. Everyone I think nearly froze their hind ends off that night. Since it was going to be cold Robert decided not to rough it by sleeping in the tent and slept in the truck. Instead his tent had a lot of the hot dog buns for the next day. Hmmm some animal in the night decided it wanted those buns (at least some of them) and gnawed its way into the tent.

Rod told about the event and I won't add much there. He's right about the wind though.

Dutch oven cobbler, a great fire and more stories around the firepit after the event and something about a marshmellow eating contest too. But I heard that it was going down in the lower 30s and I got nervous. It was cold the night before and It was going to be colder? OH NO! I think I put on enough layers that I couldn't fit anything more on. Robert meanwhile was telling us how he would be quite comfy sleeping in his rig and looked quite smug! LOL Rod had no choice of course but to go home and sleep in his own bed too. I prepared the car for a quick retreat if the tent and cold didn't mix but I am happy to report that I actually slept several hours and was nice and toasty warm. There was a frost warning and I swear it was true. Of course I did burn a couple of holes in a sleeping bag I borrowed that night. when I wrapped it around me at the fire. Then after I was just settling down the raccoons started fighting in the woods just outside the tent. They put up quite a ruckus out there.

This morning I was in charge of breakfast. The menu was orange juice, french toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon and sauage. Sounds good right? Rod was providing the eggs and bread and said he would be back at 8 am. Most of the stuff we couldn't start until we got those eggs. Hmmm 9 am and no Rod. After 9 and no Rod.......Finally he arrived and told us he had forgotten to say the night before that the eggs were in the tent! Oh my! LOL Everyone was starved by that time. We had way more food than people and invited everyone who drove by to join us for breakfast. I wonder why no one took us up on it? LOL

Then the breaking down of camp began. I don't like that part as it signals the official end of the trip. Robert decided to try one of the kayak caches and was staying the night before starting work again. (I wonder where they are sending him?) We decided to grab a couple of caches on the way out. As we passed the first boat launch we saw no signs of Robert. Since it was his first time and he was alone we were worried. No one gets hurt on our watch!! When we went to the second boat launch we finally saw him and I think I have several pictures and will post later. Talking about pictures. Robert had his cameral everywhere. He took some very interesting shots and videos. In a few days I hope to see them on youtube too.....

I was very happy to meet Robert and put a face to a name of one of my internet friends! Next year maybe some more of you can join us!

Roddy, Glad to hear the event went well!! what's a little adversity to a geocacher!

Edited by Rockin Roddy

This place is to quiet. So in celebration of me getting all the coins on a spread sheet which is numbered, I am ready to add more coins. So the prize will be the green Todie's Wild Ride unactivated coin. The coin will be mailed to the winner.

Their is two ways to win this coin.

First way is to activate a coin for Todie's Wild Ride to send out.

The second way is to invite someone new to activate a coin to send out for Todie's Wild Ride. Both you and the new participant will be entered into the drawing. The new participant or you will have to post that you invited the new participant.

The winner will be drawn on June 1 by random draw. Hope this doesn't interfere with any cointest that Rod has planned. I think that is all except this is the prize.

You are an AWESOME person, my friend...THANK YOU for the great release push!!! I may just have to release a few to spur others on??
